What a week. Haven’t posted since last Thursday – the storm came in on Friday and hasn’t really left yet. We got off light – electric off and a fence down. Our friends down the road had quite a bit of storm damage but travel inland only five miles and the snow is unbelievable. The poor farmers – the sheep and lambs have no chance, we could see the army chinook dropping food over the hills for stranded livestock but there have been many losses.
Apologies – I don’t want to write a sad post – trying to cajoule myself into better form.
So – busy day today. Flowers to make up and deliver this morning. Cleared more of the rough grass along the side of the lane but it looks even worse now, the old hawthorn hedge is rather leggy and bare at the bottom, I will try to fill with quicks and hopefully that will help.
We then moved all of the wood which had been cut from the laid hedge in January and brought home to be cut and stored for next year’s winter fewell (Good King Henry).
Then I gathered foliage and flowers for wedding table arrangements (made up tonight) to be delivered in the morning. Looking forward to a lazy weekend, eating yet more chocolate and drinking yet more wine. Detox will truly start when the weather improves….good luck with that (as my lovely supportive son would say…sarcastically of course).
Still too depressed to photo the garden – every single leaf of foliage throughout the three acres has been blasted.
More tomorrow – promise more uplifting theme! x
